A Birthday Card for my Grandpa...

My Grandpa turned 81 on the 17th of September. He has raised horses all his life, so I thought this image would be perfect. It is from Create with TLC. I colored it with my Bic Mark It Markers. The buttons are from my stash and all of the cardstock is the Paper Studio.
